Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that combines kicks and acrobatic movements to music and song to form a playful fight/game. Developed by slaves in Brazil, it is now a widespread art form all over the world and a UNESCO cultural intangible heritage.
The society is set up to introduce students to this beautiful art form - martial arts techniques, elements of dance, and music -, to practice weekly and to pass on information about Capoeira classes both within and outside the university.
The society holds weekly classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays, mixing capoeira, music and maculele. Beginners are always welcome! We generally train alongside Exeter group Capoeira Libertaçao.
